If it is, yes I have it and I love it.

Yeah, that one.
For some reason i don't think it takes that long to set up, but its probably since i'm jaded from having to play so much monopoly in accounting class :/ and that does take forever.

I guess i ended up having some "advance" rule questions, maybe i'll post them here. I know i'm probably taking it too seriously but it did come up during game play.

1. If you die do you get to keep dynamite/keycard/pizza etc?

2. If you already used dynamite or a keycard to get in and got in but lost to shredder, would you have to get it again if you die?

I have seen it on sale a lot of times and i have passed cause it looked like it would take forever to setup and it would take away the fun, Is it really worth it??

The first time it took some time but we were also reading the instructions, the second time and on it didn't take much time at all, like i said even the first time i played it it didn't take too long to setup compared to games like monopoly.

Me and my friends really enjoyed it, and they're not really turtle fans so i'm not being biased.

While it does take awhile to set up, it gets easier, and faster, the more you play. You figure out a setup rhythm and it goes really quickly. I’ve found it helpful to keep the different pieces in different bags. I keep all the pieces for the “regular” game in one bag, and the pieces used only in the “advanced” game in another.

We always keep our keycard/dynamite tiles when I play with my siblings. But going over the rules again, it's not really clear. I don’t see why you’d lose any of the pieces you haven’t used yet. But the rules do imply that once you use a dynamite/keycard tile, it gets discarded. Hmmm… that would make things trickier.
